Korean translation and interpreting services
Culturally and linguistically, Korean poses many challenges. Even for bilingual individuals. It’s why Asian Absolute’s Korean translation and interpreting services are used by clients in the UK, US, Asia, Australia and around the world. Because the only linguists you’ll find here are native speakers. Subject matter specialists in your particular area. Who have a deep understanding of the cultural differences between your home and target markets.
This is vital with a language like Korean. It’s formed from syllabic blocks, each a combination of at least one consonant and at least one vowel. It’s a double-byte language on any computer system. And it also has little in common with Chinese or Japanese – languages which you might expect to be similar due to geography.
But with Asian Absolute’s expert interpreters and translators on your side, you can compete with confidence against local rivals. With the authority which comes from knowing your new target audience as intimately as you do your domestic clients.
Why choose Asian Absolute?
A native linguist is always going to get you the best results. Uniquely with Asian Absolute, you’ll be paired with native Korean translators or interpreters when you need to translate into Korean – and native English-speakers when you’re targeting an English-speaking market.
This ensures that your linguist has the deep understanding of both cultures required to localise your content. Whether that’s your website. Your latest eLearning course. Or as part of your interpreting service for your upcoming conference.

Guinness World Records
What do you need Korean translation services for?
Although undergoing change, Korean society remains tightly knit. This means it can still be difficult for foreigners to win trust and confidence. Equally, as a Korean business operating outside of your home market, you won’t want to sound like anything other than a confident local company.
Not only is it Asian Absolute’s standard practice to pair you with a specialist in your field. Whether that field is automotive engineering or zoology. You’ll also know that your linguist has both knowledge and experience of the specific project you have in mind:
Korean interpreting services which focus on more than just language
Your interpreter needs to be alert to a lot more than the verbal nuances of the languages involved. Body language. Mannerisms. Expected conduct. These are other key areas where an alert linguist will be able to help you navigate a given situation. This remains the same whether you need Korean interpreting services as a native English or native Korean-speaker.
Asian Absolute can source both consecutive and simultaneous interpreters in London and the UK for your:
- Social engagements, dinners and parties
- Voice-overs and dubbing

Frequently Asked Questions
Where is Korean spoken?
Korean is an official language only in the nations of South Korea and North Korea. But it is also spoken by people in Korean communities around the world.
How different is Korean from North Korea to South Korea?
Currently, the Korean spoken in North Korea and the Korean spoken in South Korea remain very similar.
Yet the differences between them are growing. These are mainly in accent and pronunciation, yet there are also increasing differences in vocabulary – largely because of the far faster rate of technological progress in South Korea and new words that refer to these technologies.
The longer that the two countries remain so cut off from each other, the greater the likelihood that these differences will continue to grow.
How different is Korean from Chinese and Japanese?
Although Korean, Chinese, and Japanese are often lumped together because of the desirability of entering each of the markets they are spoken in, the three languages are actually very different indeed.
Each belongs to a different language family, has a different vocabulary, and different writing systems and grammar rules.
The romance languages of Europe have far more in common than Korean, Chinese, and Japanese.
